“Stately 1842 Greek Revival Historic House”

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 June 2017

This historic house is furnished with antique and furnishings collected by Alida Harper-Fowlkes. It serves as the headquarters for the Society of the Cincinnati where they read her will yearly. Love the exterior and interior architecture especially the elliptical ceiling opening between the 1st and 2nd floor. The house is located on the corner of Orleans Square.

If you only tour one mansion I suggest this one...they take you thru two of the three floors and are thorough in their history lesson. Our guide was Richard (I believe!) and was very patient with questions and just delightful.
We actually just happened onto this house and I'm so glad we did.

The Harper Fowlkes house has wonderful chandeliers that have been electrified. The Faux wood painted dining room walls are amazing. The moldings throughout the home are lovely. The docents are friendly and welcoming. It is located in a quiet part of Savannah---Orleans Square and well worth the visit. Exit trough the garden that can be rented for functions. It is a beautiful setting.

Ok so I know "Hidden Gem" sounds like a corny title but it's true. I didn't find this house in any of my tourism research but stumbled across it by pure chance. It's a beautiful house, the only renovations done were in 1890 and yes, you're allowed upstairs! Located on the lesser known Orleans square it's well worth the visit. For only $10.00 I was given a tour that lasted over an hour. Much better value than other tours around Savannah!

I enjoyed this tour. Why there were extra doors put in a room. The uniqued air venting system and how the owner had the backyard created to look like the rest of the house AFTER she passed.
